Gallery - Architecture

The Building aesthetic is inspired by traditional Japanese architecture, to be in harmony with the environment and to conserve the indigenous grasslands. All excavation was done by hand so as to preserve the natural environment of the Nkutu Reserve.

The Theme
Inspired by the 5 elements, the building structures were designed with the idea of delicate contact with the earth. The roofs are planted and act as contained gardens which compliment the indigenous forest canopy.
